Fannie Bell Woods  (1892-1974)
Last updated: 17.10.18
Recent (2009) research by "Perf" Bill Edwards and Nora Hulse concludes that Fannie B. Woods was a real person and not a pseudonym which was previously attributed to Chas. L. Johnson for the composition Sweetness (1912). She was born in Kentucky and grew up in Louisville where she was taught piano and organ. Aged 17 she was reported to have been working in a music store and at 18-years old she composed Sweetness, her only known published composition, which she dedicated to her later husband, Mr. W. J. Mansfield. She was a church organist until the mid 1950's and taught organ and piano almost to her life's end.
For data housekeeping purposes she is listed in these webpages as a one-off composer.
